Allegiance- Will You Choose Life or Death?

Will you choose life, or death?

Making a choice can be difficult, but I can guarantee there is no other decision as critical to answer than, “I have come to give you life, will you receive it?” You may think you have more pressing concerns, but you are not even guaranteed the next breath. Do you think so little of your-self? Or perhaps you swing in the other direction. You are so self-confident in your ability to control your own destiny that you consider your own plans to be absolute. Either way, their will be no excuses on Judgement day. All would have heard of Jesus. Because He knocks, seeks, finds, binds, lifts, commits, all on time.

You are no accident. But you are either written in the book of life or not. Saunter over to There IS a God and see how much more you are willing to gamble with your life and the lives of those you come in contact with. We are either gathering or scattering. And He doesn’t take kindly to the “scattering” type.

God IS love. Whom he loves he reigns in and teaches and guides. He chastises when necessary so that we can come into the fullness of His plans for us. Please get your head out of the sand. Time is running short very quickly. We are given only so much time to live here on earth. Let today’s yes, be tomorrow’s eternity with God. 

Jesus is in the teaching business and you are not too old, too young, to teach. Let it be for Him you reach. 

If you are reading this and have already made the choice toward life. Lose the mediocre if that is what your life has been like. For it is written- Romans 11:21  For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 
Romans 11:22  Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 

Here’s a good Blog post to consider: An open letter-to those I leave behind.  It will walk you through how to enter into a personal relationship with the Lord. So that you may be a partaker of life, not death.

Allegiance

To whom are you for? Is a good question to ask.
For one way sows to life, the other to evil basks.

Drawing: Black flag with flames and black clouds on left, White flag with red cross on right with grass and sun

To whom do you show allegiance, yes, whose side are you truly on?
The God to whom you’ll answer holds judgement in His palms.

To love and righteousness there truly is no law.
Evil though, its opposite, has only blatant flaws.

Don’t let life slip away on you; this world, it is truly timed.
Make your choice while you still can, or find life eternal that is fined.

Our life is not just ours alone, we were put here for a reason.
Look up towards hope and truth, and you’ll find it in due season.

God wishes that none of us perish, no, not even a single one!
But instead finds the path to life, in Christ, His only Son.

So look again at where you stand; I hope you’ll see truth’s mercy.
Forgiveness has the name of Jesus, and He’s looking to reverse thee.
